“…5, 91 or normal [7], Elastic fibers have been described as diminished [5. 9, 10] and fragmented [9,10] or normal [5], Electron-microscopic studies were only done in patients with increased elastic fibers 111 -14], These differing find ings suggest that there might be different forms of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Due to the alterations in the elastic tissue the disease was termed naevus elasticus [4], Papular elastorrhexis occurs in adolescence and was first described by Bordas et al f 1].…”

“…In X-ray examination a focal increased bone density of the epiphyses and metaphyses was found and named osteopoikilosis [1, 2]. The histological examination of the skin lesions has revealed different findings; collagen bundles were thickened [3]or normal [4]; elastic fibers were increased [2, 5, 6], diminished and fragmented [7, 8]or normal [3]. The skin lesions showing accumulated elastic fibers on histological examination were named naevus elasticus.…”

“…The only histological abnormality detected in the lesions of their case was an increase in the number of normal collagen bundles. Many additional cases have since been reported, including families in which the syndrome presented with osteopoikilosis and dermatofibrosis lentieularis disseminata in the same or different individuals (Smith & Waisman, i960;Berlin et al, 1967;Marshall, 1970;Raque & Wood, 1970;Schorr, Optiz & Reyes, 1972;Schonenberg, 1975).…”
